ENGlobal Corporation Announces Profitable Q2 2020; Revenues Up 31 Percent vs. Q2 2019

Conference Call To Discuss Results at 9:00 am EDT Today

HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / August 6, 2020 / ENGlobal Corporation (NASDAQ:ENG), a leading provider of engineered modular solutions, today announced that, for the second quarter ended June 27, 2020, it achieved net income of $68,000, or $.00 per share, compared to a net loss of $517,000, or $(.02) per share, in the second quarter ended June 29, 2019.

In the second quarter of 2020, ENGlobal achieved revenue of $17,882,000, a 31 percent improvement on revenue of $13,621,000 recorded in Q2 2019. This gain was due to a $3.3 million, or 41 percent, increase in revenue from the company’s Automation segment, and a $1.0 million, or 17 percent, increase in revenue from its Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM) segment.

ENGlobal’s improved bottom line performance compared with Q2 2019 was largely due to the company’s increased quarterly revenue, a 2.1 percentage point gain in gross profit margin by the Automation segment – to 16.1 percent from 14.0 percent – and a $136,000 decrease in SG&A expenses compared with the year-ago quarter.

For the six months ended June 27, 2020, ENGlobal achieved net income of $1,169,000, or $.04 per share, compared with a net loss of $1,491,000, or $(.05) per share, in the first six months ended June 29, 2019.

Six-month 2020 revenue was $37,142,000, a 44 percent improvement on revenue of $25,784,000 recorded in the first half of 2019. This gain was due to a $10.9 million, or 75 percent, increase in revenue from the company’s Automation segment and a $0.5 million, or 4 percent, increase in revenue from its EPCM segment compared with the first half of 2019. ENGlobal’s improved six-month bottom line performance was the result of the company’s increased revenue, a 6.6 percentage point gain in gross profit margin by the Automation segment – to 18.9 percent from 12.3 percent – and a $308,000 decrease in SG&A expenses compared with the same period a year ago.

“We’re proud to again report profitable results, given the many challenges of operating during the pandemic and extremely difficult energy industry conditions,” said ENGlobal CEO William A. Coskey, P.E. “Not only did our company achieve its third consecutive quarterly profit, but also we grew revenue strongly in the second quarter and first half of 2020.”

The CEO continued, “ENGlobal is fortunate to operate in several fairly resilient areas, in particular our work on modular engineered process plants, which are now mainly directed toward renewable fuels and the hydrogen economy. Both of these areas are driven by attractive low carbon fuel initiatives, and are not totally dependent on oil and gas economics. We estimate the total value of our potential opportunities in this sector, including projects we are actively bidding on, now exceeds $500 million. We won’t of course win all of these jobs, but as the green energy market continues to expand, we’re optimistic that we’ll win our fair share of them.

“Another resilient area for us is our modular automation business, where we supply highly technical electronic control and process analytical systems on a full service basis. This area of our business is typically driven by environmental compliance requirements as well as our customers’ need to replace obsolete, computer-based equipment.

“Finally, we are very proud of our Government group’s long-term support of the U.S. military, as we install, upgrade and maintain fueling systems at installations around the world. This business has historically been another consistent area for ENGlobal.

“Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and difficult conditions in the energy industry, we believe that ENGlobal still has significant growth opportunities with drivers outside of our historical oil & gas work, and these could potentially exceed the level of business we have performed in recent years.

“While our backlog has not been materially impacted by COVID in terms of project cancellations, many of our projects have been impacted by quarantine orders, travel restrictions and work site closures. COVID has affected our ability to make business development contacts with customers and it has also delayed their project award decisions. As a result, our backlog has declined by 29 percent from $59.2 million as of December 28, 2019 to $42.0 million as of June 27, 2020.”

ENGlobal CFO Mark Hess stated, “Our mission is to capitalize on these potential areas of growth in order to grow backlog. While we believe our backlog is sufficient to keep a significant portion of our workforce productive for the balance of 2020, replacing our backlog will be one key factor in our future profitability and the extent to which this will occur may be affected by future delays and pandemic-related developments, most of which cannot be predicted at this time.”

Mr. Hess continued, “As a result of these uncertainties and as a precaution to provide additional future liquidity, ENGlobal entered into a Revolving Credit Facility with California-based Pacific Western Bank on May 21, 2020 for an aggregate amount of up to $6.0 million. We believe that unused availability under this credit facility, which was $2.1 million at the end of June, together with our cash and other components of working capital, which includes the funds provided by our previously disclosed $4.9 million PPP loan, will provide us with enough liquidity to fund our current operations.”
